  2. 2. Chronic Tennis Elbow : Aspects on Pathogenesis and Treatment in a Soft Tissue Pain Condition

    Author : Magnus Peterson; Kurt Svärdsudd; Margaretha Eriksson; Harald Breivik; Uppsala universitet; []
    Keywords : tennis elbow; pain; chronic; soft tissue; imaging; PET; RCT; survey; treatment; exercise; eccentric; concentric; epicondylosis; epicondylitis; tendinosis; tendinitis;

    Abstract : Objectives: To study the treatment practice of chronic tennis elbow (TE) among general practitioners (GPs) and physiotherapists (PTs), the effects of a simple, graded home exercise regime versus expectation, the effects of eccentric versus concentric exercise, and the involvement of the substance P – NK1 receptor system in the peripheral, painful tissue of chronic TE patients by positron emission tomography (PET). Materials and methods: A postal survey regarding therapeutic methods used in patients with chronic TE was sent to 129 GPs and 77 PTs, 81 subjects with chronic TE were randomly and blindly assigned to either an exercise group or a wait list group, 120 subjects were randomly assigned to either eccentric or concentric exercise and ten subjects were examined by PET and the NK1 specific radioligand [11C]GR205171.

  3. 3. Arthroplasty in Elbow Fracture Treatment

    Author : Jens Nestorson; Lars Adolfsson; Carl Ekholm; Ola Wahlström; Simon Lambert; Linköpings universitet; []

    Abstract : Open reduction and internal fixation is the treatment of choice for distal humeral fractures. Stable fixation is required to allow early mobilisation and to reduce the risk of poor functional results. In an elderly patient with osteoporotic bone and with a comminuted intra-articular fracture stable internal fixation can be difficult to achieve. READ MORE

  4. 4. Lateral epicondylalgia A new structured treatment program with an inter-disciplinary approach

    Author : Pia Nilsson; Göteborgs universitet; Göteborgs universitet; Gothenburg University; []
    Keywords : MEDICIN OCH HÄLSOVETENSKAP; MEDICAL AND HEALTH SCIENCES; elbow; function; interdisciplinary; lateral epicondylalgia; pain; PRTEE-S; recurrence period; sick-leave; training program;

    Abstract : Conclusion: Interdisciplinary cooperation in the treatment of patients with acute lateral epicondylalgia benefits the patients by shortening the rehabilitation period and provides health care professionals the opportunity for an improved learning and exchanging experiences. There was a strong will to cooperate and the risks of side effects with corticosteroid injections and NSAID are well-known although they are the most common treatments. READ MORE

    Author : Anne Ericson; Karolinska Institutet; Karolinska Institutet; []

    Abstract : Background: Total elbow arthroplasty (TEA) is used for treatment of patients with severe pain and disability due to reumatoid arthritis. Long term results are not as good as for hip and knee replacements. READ MORE
